Postcolonial Translation : Theory and Practice

Description

This outstanding collection brings together eminent contributors (from Britain, the US, Brazil, India and Canada) to examine crucial interconnections between postcolonial theory and translation studies.

The essay topics include:
* links between centre and margins in intellectual transfer
* shifts in translation practice from colonial to post-colonial societies.

* Brazilian cannibalistic theories in literary transfer.
